Quitting Christmas
2 December, 2012
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


Quitting Christmas, an end to tradition
Too much of life invades
No time for each other, no time to share
No time for family

We never were very close to start with
Holidays were all we ever had
Seeing each other and small talk
It's loss now leaves me sad

Families grow and separate
So many hurried directions we zoom
But it was still nice to have one night
Where all kin was in the same room

I guess family Christmas will be another memory
Something lost along times way
It's sad I will never see some again
Unless a death comes one day.

Children grow and move away
and start traditions of their own
It's just sad the generations separate
and one day relatives will pass, unknown

------- Author's Notes -------

It's sad how sometimes family gatherings held together by the older generations end. The younger generations have to work thru the holiday and don't have the time.. It's sad... But we will find a new way to celebrate. The family is just smaller
